[ Then, some would-be contributors complain mildly about rejection
of their contributions, lack of response, etc. ]
I just want to remind everyone to please try to be patient.
The core team offers an excellent combination of technical
skills, and does so on a volunteer basis. All of them get
loads of e-mail, so it is understandable that one may fail
to get a response, or the response may expose frustration
with having to deal with so much mail...
Again, thanks everyone, the core team especially, for making it
possible to enjoy and learn from the NetBSD system. I am involved
in the project because I enjoy expanding my technical knowledge,
and I find the technical discussions very rewarding.
(I LOVE to stirr up a technical discussion! 8-)
